OneBookJuly2017 - Hobonich Cousin Spring A5

Long time no post!

 I am still around, I just haven't felt the urge to blog and/or do videos, but the #OneBookJuly2017 drew me back and I decided to not only participate, but I decided to do a video to show how I am approaching this year's challenge.

 I tend to flip flop around on my planner vessels and sizes so it should be no surprise to anyone who knows me that I decided to revisit using the Hobonichi. I started the year off in rings, moved to a Traveler's Notebook and now have settled on the Hobonichi.

 I am going to try to do videos and blogs on a more regular basis as I do think I have something to contribute to this thing called "planning" as I have been a planner nerd for almost 30 years now (and oops, now I have just dated myself).

Hope you enjoy - please subscribe so you don't miss my future videos and leave me a thumbs up if you enjoyed this video.  I welcome comments and suggestions - however I have no patience for comments that are just negative or nasty - who has time for that anyway?  So I am sorry if you are a sour-puss (that is not a fun way to live), but since I prefer positive energy I will just delete any negative comments - it's my channel so it's my prerogative.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon!

Organize Your Home - Free Weekly Schedule

You would think at my age (no, I'm not telling) that I would have a system in place for keeping my home organized & clean, but the opposite is true.  I have always just cleaned as I see a mess or I think it needs cleaning, which often results in "How did this house get to be such a mess" scenario.  

I have tried several programs, but most of what I found online seems to be geared towards stay at home Moms and the program is either too detailed or not detailed enough.  In an effort to try to organize my home along with my days, I resorted to creating my own weekly schedule.  

I designed this to print onto standard US full size paper (8.5" x 11") in landscape mode.  You can either print on one side and fold the paper in half and hole punch or print on both sides and cut in the middle, then hole punch for your planner.  If you are feeling really adventurous you can print several pages on both sides, staple or bind the middle and you have your own traveler's notebook style insert.  I plan on doing the later and tipping it into my Hobonich Cousin.  Everyone's printer settings are different so I can't direct you on what will work best for yours, but my printer seems to have the best results when I do the settings to print on standard size paper in landscape mode.

Here is the link to the free .pdf file: 
The image below shows what the printed result should look like when it is done.

This is free for personal use only, if you would like any modifications made (to the text only) send me an email and for a small charge I can probably help you out.  Send email inquiries to itsklslife{at}

Thank you and hope you enjoy!

Life is Busy....

In my last post (as with almost all of my posts) I always have good intentions of posting on a regular basis, but life has a way of getting in my way.  So I'll just post when I can and call it good.  

I am still using a Classic Size Planner - the beginning of the year had me flip flopping where I tried a smaller size for about the millionth time.  Small = convenience, but not practical for a Mom of school schedules and keeper of our church calendars, etc. so back to Classic size I went.  I still like to binder hop, but the planner guts remain the same.  My system is not broken, I just get bored with the external cover.

Here is the link to the .pdf version:
One of these days I will do an updated video, but today is not the day, so for now you will have to make do with another free printable - this one for tracking eating and exercising habits - yep, the scale is climbing so I needed a way to track and rein in my eating habits. 

This one is designed for a classic size printer and it's free for personal use.  Just print single or double sided onto standard US size paper, cut in half and hole punch.  

Enjoy and I'll blog at you soon (said with the best intentions possible).
